Elon Musk buys James Bond submarine, Tom Hanks wants to wear Spandex, Daniel Radcliffe gets a spanking
Muppets Holiday Spectacular is set to air on Thanksgiving night at 9:30 PM for 90 minutes, and it couldn’t be gayer if it tried. Co-hosted by Lady Gaga, it will feature appearances by Sir Elton John and RuPaul (I can’t wait to see RuPaul take on Miss Piggy), plus allies Kristen Bell (please let there be a new Muppet sloth) and Joseph Gordon-Levitt. One Million Moms won’t make it until Christmas.
Speaking of my beloved Muppets, why are they such a sausage fest?
The Portland Trailblazers have become the first major sports team to explicitly endorse marriage equality. “The Portland Trail Blazers are in support of the Freedom to Marry and Religious Protection ballot initiative. We do so as believers in individual choice as a fundamental right of all people.” The Portland Timbers and Thorns previously endorsed the measure.
SyFy is set to air Beast of the Bering Sea about two siblings that go gold prospecting in underwater caves only to awaken amphibious vampires. Just when you thought they couldn’t get any weirder. On the plus side, it stars Jerry Maguire’s Jonathan Lipnicki, who grew up to be a total hunk.
After James Bond’s submarine car from The Spy Who Loved Me was found in an abandoned storage unit that was purchased for $100 right out of a plot from Storage Wars, a mysterious bidder snapped it up for nearly $900k. Now it’s been revealed that billionaire founder of SpaceX and Tesla Elon Musk snapped up the collectible.
I don’t think that most gay men would snap up the Funkbod t-shirt, with strategic padding that can do anything from support your manboobs to gives you shoulders and pecs. It’s too much false advertising. Who exactly is this marketed towards?
Fox has given a series order to Hieroglyph, set in the world of ancient Egypt. It involves palace intrigue as the Pharaoh releases a notorious thief from prison to help control palace intrigue. They’re really playing up the sex factor of this thing, but I doubt it has anything for us, and I admit to having no idea how same-sex love was treated in ancient Egypt.
Chris Colfer has announced an extension to his existing book deal that will bring us The Land of Stories 3 in 2014 and The Land of Stories 4 in 2015, along with a picture book based on a tale from the original book. Chris’ media empire is solid.
The Air Force has finally published guidelines for same-sex partners wishing additional leave to travel to states that support marriage equality to marry. “In order to be granted administrative absence, the Airman must be located more than 100 miles from a U.S. state, the District of Columbia or other jurisdictions that allows the couple to marry. According to the policy, if two service members are part of a couple and desire to get married, both members may be granted an administrative absence if qualified. Members may be granted up to seven days if stationed in the continental United States, and up to 10 days if stationed overseas. The waiting period, required by law, to obtain a legal marriage from the jurisdiction nearest the assignment location is what determines the days. Also, a maximum of two travel days is authorized if stationed in the continental U.S., and five days is authorized if the member is stationed overseas.”
Oregon is trying to sue and pass initiatives to enact marriage equality, but until it does, your out of state marriage will be recognized by the state, effective immediately.
Mike Doyle has been cast in the lead in paranormal thrilled The Last Word. The movie is about a killer who is convicted, but not before he curses everyone involved in the case, from judges to jurors who mysteriously begin dying. Doyle will play a juror whose son is threatened and sets out to prove that they convicted the wrong man to save him.
Any Given Tuesday is a heart wrenching video from the L.A. Gay and Lesbian Center about the plight of homeless GLBT youth in the city. James Woods, Jamie Foxx, Sir Elton John, Lisa Ling and more have thrown their star power behind this video. I really need to issue some trigger warnings: Rape, drugs, suicide.
Today in Benedict Cumberbatch sounding like things other than Benedict Cumberbatch, he unleashes a Chewbacca imitation on The Graham Norton Show that seems to invoke PTSD in Harrison Ford.
Tom Hanks wants to play a superhero, but nobody ever asks him. And he doesn’t want top play Nick Fury, telling the superhero what to do, he wants to be the one in Spandex.
I don’t really see how the upcoming Batman/Superman movie can work. They can’t even get past this short film, and it’s pretty honest.
One of the most endearing things about Daniel Radcliffe is that he doesn’t really seem to have an ego. He’s just up to have fun. So when a radio host asks if she can rhythmically spank him, he just bends over in her lap and goes with it, and then he makes jokes about how good it was for him. At least I think they were jokes. Maybe he’s into that.
The first trailer for Da Vinci’s Demons season 2 has hit the web, and well, it’s still not gay. Not really at all. It doesn’t look like it’s quite as straight at least, but there’s not a hint of gay in this trailer, not even from the Pope. I see no reason to subscribe to Starz again.
